back to basics + a {cute leopard hat} giveaway

hey guys!  i have some awesome news::  recovery from surgery has progressed beautifully, and i seriously feel better than ever!  i have energy again, feel healthy, and am just crazy excited about getting back to blogging + back to work.  thank you for your patience during this s-l-o-w period as of late:: your support has meant so much!  as you'll see in these pictures, i ditched my red hair and crossed back over to team brunette-- yay!  anytime i do a drastic change of hair color it's always so fun to play with my wardrobe.  i guess for this i was feeling very natural, because my photographer keely said she doesn't think she has ever seen me in jeans…
